Biggie's Yardbird is the name of the kitchen dishing out fried chicken sandwiches, smashburgers, and other bar food at Dainty Dillo in East Austin. Biggie’s checks all the boxes we look for in a good smashburger—melty cheese, a fluffy potato roll, and nicely browned patty edges that look like a lace doily. It’s a solid burger, with a bun that we wish arrived just a little toastier, though they do get a few bonus points for selling us a side of fried, pickled okra bites that might be our new favorite snack.
